I am super excited to have my article published in the 2018 Fall Edition of ‘Traces’ Publication from the Barren County Historical Society
I have always loved shining a light upon the stories and things from our past. I have driven and walked many a mile through the back country of Mid-west America and her lovely countryside, to document abandoned places, rural haunts and old cemeteries to capture these hidden stories.
I love the serene moment of capturing a photograph of a stillness that resides in these places. If you are quiet and listen, you can hear the story, reaching out to you through the abandoned structures and things that are left behind.
It is important to me to share these findings and forgotten stories with others, as a joyful observer of this creation.
I wish to thank a very dear lady, Sandi Gorin, the Editor of “Traces’ Barren County Historical Society, for her profound love of the past and her incredible talent in helping me on finding some much needed information on one of my abandoned places !
